Think back to, oh, every day since conservatives started standing up for their beliefs and their values. Think about the blatant and ongoing attempts by sycophants like MSNBC and the New York Times to tie conservatism, Republicans, tea partiers, talk radio, alternative blogs, etc. to hatred, incivility, hate crimes, murder, constipation, bad grades, bad breath, nose bleeds, male pattern baldness, did I say hate yet?
...we can't help but feel nostalgic for days long gone . . . When, instead, a simple knock on the door and well-timed threat would be enough to solve any disagreement. . . But doesn't a situation like 1033, where we're literally stealing money from old people and kids, call for something more direct? Like a kneecapping?
Update: Over at Big Government, Kurt Sclichter puts the Rush thing very simply:
An American political leader is demanding that a private business not do business with an American citizen because she does not approve of his politics.
He is referring to "Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), who urged the NFL not to allow Rush’s bid to buy some team." He's right. An American politician who should address real possible ethics violations, as opposed to the made up crap about Rush, is trying to interfere in a private business deal due to one person's political views. Welcome to the twilight zone.
